Permira began building up its CLO team last year, hiring Andrew Lawson from Citigroup as head of capital markets, and analysts Charlotte Claraco (from Babson), Ryan Mcgahon (PGIM Fixed Income) and Natalie Taiwo (Commerzbank).
They joined CIO Thomas Kyriakoudis and portfolio manager Ariadna Stefanescu in the CLO team.
